RATIONALE: Doxercalciferol may improve low blood cell counts and decrease the need for blood transfusions and may be an effective treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of doxercalciferol in treating patients who have myelodysplastic syndrome or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
Dietary Supplement: doxercalciferol
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Doxercalciferol for the Treatment of Myelodysplastic Syndromes|
|Study Start Date:||September 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the response rate of patients with myelodysplastic syndromes or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia treated with doxercalciferol.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the time to progression and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
